Feasibility study for the Metepec dam on the River Cantarranas

The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of building a dam on the River Cantarranas, near to Metepec in Atlixco. The project aimed to improve the water supply in Puebla and Greater Puebla both in terms of quantity and quality, based on the data provided by the Operating System for the Drinking Water and Sewage Services of Puebla (SOAPAP). This involved studying and analysing two possible locations for the dam, each involving a different height. In the end, it was decided a rockfill dam with a concrete face to form an impermeable system would be the best option.
